Invertebrates Feel Pain

Lobsters, crabs and other invertebrates are treated as if they didn’t feel pain when raised or caught for food, because it is thought that they don’t perceive pain. However, a study carried out by scientists at Queen’s University Belfast indicates that these animals do feel pain. In fact, Elwood and Crook, who carried out the research, “have changed how they treat the invertebrates in their labs. They now use as few animals as possible and keep the potential for suffering to a minimum.”

Please visit Do lobsters and other invertebrates feel pain. New research has some answers.

Science helps us understand the world around us to a certain extent but we have much to learn. I think if we act with compassion, instead of waiting for science to confirm something such as if invertebrates feel pain, we are on the right path. In essence, we should treat others the way we want to be treated.
